Bettor Enforce Wins Mares Race (Sunday 18th February 2018)

It was a case of the ‘old firm’ when Bettor Enforce won at Winton today for trainer driver Alan Beck and the This Time Syndicate.

“They’ve had Tact Halsey and Black Print with me. It looks as though they could play for the front row of Southland now but may lack a bit of speed these days,” said Beck, commenting on some of the group of owners who are mates.

Tact Halsey won thirteen races while Black Print won five of his twelve starts before he was sold to Australia. He won another fourteen races there.

In today’s race Bridesdale Robyn and Raksbet ensured the pace was on early and this played into the hands of Bettor Enforce who was three back on the inside. Beck got her off the running line early to sit parked for a short time before Raksbet popped out of the trailing position to challenge Bridesdale Robyn. Beck was able to get off the back of a tiring Raksbet and Bettor Enforce let down with a good staying effort winning by three quarters of a length from Loma Jaccka, which came off Bettor Enforces back.

The overall time was 1-56.6 with the last 800 metres run in 60.0.

Beck said the win didn’t surprise him.

“She’s been racing a better class and ran third in the Equine Stakes at Christmas. She’s such a good stand horse so we might target the Country Cups series.”

From thirty one starts the mare has now won four races and banked nearly $34,000.
